Cleolanta's forbidding her subjects access to outside information reminds me of the Kim family and the Hermit Kingdom.

If these gypsy moons are such a destructive problem why the heck are the only dealing with them now and why is rocky jones and not the government responsible for dealing with them?

C'mon folks . . . this episode features a young (and skinny) Sgt. Schultz! That's enough to qualify for the magic 100-laughs rating , , , even if it has that screaming baby in the background (which irritates me to no end).

So, never mind about the absurd thing with the moons and their "atmosphere chain." Or that, not being in orbit around anything, they're not actually moons. Or that no one on the station is worried about it being pulled into one of them by gravity. Or how quickly they're apparently moving through space. The professor says that the problem is that nothing designed to operate in space can possibly withstand being in an atmosphere... Right after talking to Rocky, whose ship just took off from a planet with an atmosphere and went into space.

I don't wanna pick a fight with John Banner, but I once saw Werner Klemperer in a TV interview and he seemed like a really nice guy.

Why is everyone in love with Rocky Jones? Why does everyone say his full name instead of just "Rocky"

I'm surprised Joel and the 'Bots didn't say "Again?" in the Rocky the Squirrel voice whenever someone said "Rocky". Maybe they felt they beat that one to death in the other episodes.

Scotty Beckett, the actor who played Winky, lived a short, tragic life. He had to be replaced on this show because he was jailed on weapons charges and may have been involved in an armed robbery. He died at the age of 38 from unknown causes.

That baby must have been bitten by a radioactive spider. He's got a precognative danger sense.

But what I can't figure out is how the rooms on the Orbit Jet are oriented. Which way is up? It sits vertically on the pad, but travels horizontally through space. And they always walk on the floor.

One thing that I actually appreciate about the Rocky Jones series is that they actually took time to make the characters more than just bad guys. In the first that we saw, Cleolanta is the villain and Ampersand is her henchman. Then, in Crash of the Moons, we suddenly see Ampersand as someone devoted to a cause but loving his wife. Even Cleolanta becomes less villainous. I'm actually a little impressed.

The problem with riffing the 3 General Hospital episodes is that, much like the Commando Cody serial, each episode is terrible in exactly the same way as its fellows.

Did you know that Earth was hit by a Mars-sized planet billions of years ago? Scientists call it Orpheus I think, and being hit by such a large body knocked off a chunk of the planet and created TWO moons. These two moons orbited Earth for millions and millions of years, but eventually collided and made the one moon we've had ever since. Now you knooooow!

Winky has a couple of good scenes in this one. Pretty good hand to hand combat with the big guard came first. Winky actually shows some regret when order to fire on the ship bearing Cleolanta and Ampersand.

The actual title of this movie, according to the title card is simply "Crash of Moons" (no "the").

Someone may have mentioned this in another episode with the General Hospital shorts, but I still can't believe how long it took me to recognize Roy Thinnes in these shorts as being the same guy in Code Name: Diamond Head.

They ARE the same person, right? I'm not just imagining it?

WINKY’S DIARY…

Strangest thing happened today diary. After the crash of the moons, Rocky, Bobby, and I were returning home on the Orbit Jet. Bobby was on the bridge giving us yet another long pretentious lecture on his idea for a “space anchor.” Rocky sat silently and then told me to take over and excused himself to the cargo hold to “take care of something.” Moments later Rocky called on the intercom and asked me to send Bobby back to help him. I was thinking about a swell girl back home when I noticed the warning light indicating that the ship’s external airlock was open began to flash. Before I could alert Rocky it stopped. A few minutes later Rocky returned to the bridge. He sat down with what seemed to be a small euphoric smile. He leaned back comfortably, exhaled, pulled his cap down over his eyes, and causally asked me about my plans for the weekend…Huhhh?

OK, don't laugh, but I kinda liked this movie. It's got a certain retro charm, lol. The good guys are the good guys, no one gets shot in the face and everyone lives happily ever after. Plus the riffing is great. "So what would happen if one moon sat down and shut up?" LOL

As a fan of Robert Heinlein, I kinda liked this experiment. It harkens (Did I say harkens??) back to his earlier young adult books, like "Space Cadet" and "Starman Jones". I think the writes of the show swiped stuff from him! Keep in mind, this was edited together from a few episodes of the 1954 TV series "Rocky Jones, Space Ranger". I think they did a pretty good job considering it was such an early television program! It was one of the few such early shows recorded on film, that's the only reason it survived for Joel and the Bots to "enjoy".
